On Friday, Urban the Urban League distributed over 100 checks, from amounts ranging from $500 to $1,000. But this was only the start as they say they have more than 600 applications waiting to be processed.
Rhonda Gaines, who manages the housing stabilization program, said, "We've received over 5,000 phone calls since we started our program in March. Over 5,000. We get maybe 200 calls a day for rental assistance coming from people who've never applied for assistance. They've never applied for unemployment, they've never applied for anything. And they need help."
Griffin said that for such help, a small piece of gratitude is the least he can do.
